The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) is accepting nominations for its 2012 prizes honoring outstanding journalists.
There are two yearly IWMF awards: the Courage in Journalism Awards honor three female journalists worldwide who have suffered political persecution in their efforts to expose corruption and defend human rights. The Lifetime Achievement Award recognizes journalists who elevate the principles of journalism and become role models.
Full-time, part-time or freelance women journalists currently working in print, broadcast or online media in any country are eligible. Candidates for the Lifetime Achievement Award can be retired.
Journalists cannot nominate themselves. Candidates must be named by colleagues, employers, journalists or others. The application deadline is March 2.
